one of the first plants to grow every spring, ever pervasive, growing out of cracks, offering us herbal remedies and nutrients and providing the first nectar and pollen for important native pollinators.
showing us that nature can't be stopped, that no matter what, with a little rain and some sun, renewal is just a step away.
but while it's wonderful to think that nature has its own plans, that it can't be deterred, there are things that we can do to encourage a healthy biodiversity in the city and lessen our impact on this earth.
this is my scrapbook of interesting ideas and articles regarding urban ecology and wildlife. this is where I share my collection of "clippings" with friends.
